Tomato - Cucumber Salad With Fresh Basil

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

My mom sent me this recipe a few weeks ago and just in time as I had a large quantity of fresh tomatoes to use, and I was running out of ideas. It is simple and delicious. The salad serves two, but could easily be doubled.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place tomato on two plates and put cucumber on top. Sprinkle with salt.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk.
  3. Drizzle over tomato and cucumber.
  4. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  5. You might try other fresh herbs to see what else might work for your taste.

This was very nice. The one thing I changed, was to dice the tomatoes. Very refreshing on a hot day. :)

good recipe! I think I'll cut down some on the lemon rind and sugar next time, but it was very tasty. Thanks!
